On her success, Holly's mum Ginny said: "We are very proud of Holly and all that she has achieved with her skating – this is just the latest in a long list of events she has competed in and done really well in."

The youngster won all three of her races and was awarded gold medals to crown her British champion for each race.

She was awarded the overall British Championship - the highest accolade she can achieve - and received the shield.
